Gionee has announced it would be present at forthcoming 2016 Edition of the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2016) to be held in Barcelona, Spain. The Chinese company is highly expected to announce the flagship Gionee Elife S8 – successor to the Gionee Elife S7 at the yearly trade show.
Unlike the Gionee Elife S7 which has a very slim body, the focus of the Gionee Elife S8 will be more about the performance of the camera and less about the slim body design. Another feature touted is the pressure sensitive device which debuted on the Huawei Mate S, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
While there is no official confirmation yet, the Elife S8 has supposedly been spotted on GFXbench benchmark website with the model number – GN-9008. It is expected to have up to 24MP main camera which is capable of recording 4K UHD videos, a front facing 8MP camera and QHD display resolution.
Gionee has a press conference scheduled for 14:00pm (local time) on Monday, February 22, 2016 at the Hall 8 Theatre C at the MWC 2016.
Couple of hours ago, the company announced the Gionee M5 Mini in Nigeria carrying most of the specs of the Gionee M5 Lite but with some differences in the aspects of the processing power, RAM memory and built-in storage space.
